We wanted a reasonably priced two bedroomed apartment with en suite for myself and an old schoolfriend (when you get to a certain age, you need your privacy!) Astray's offering was bang on. Not large, not posh, but clean, comfortable, and with a small kitchen. And as my friend has mobility difficulties, very central for the restaurants and shopping area.... More

We stayed in a studio flat which was compact but very well-facilitated. Ours had a small dining table and chairs, and a kitchenette that had everything apart from a hotplate. We didn't mind using the communal kitchen as it was clean and spacious. We were also grateful for the large size of the ensuite bathroom, and the double bed was... More

Amazing location, very clean rooms and kitchen with a television. The staff are also very friendly and helpful! They are keen to advise about excursions. I would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to explore Rotorua!

I stayed three nights in Unit 1. All I needed was a bed and shower each night. The unit was very small. Fine for one person but awkward with two. It was clean and well set up with good TV and heat pump. The location is good and I was very happy staying there. The manager, Frank, was friendly but... More

It is right inside the town centre of Rotorua, with a major bus stop (multiple routes) right outside the property (I would even say the driveway of this motel blocks the buses leaving...). You can't do any better with location. The rooms are clean, with LCD TV on wall, kettle, glasses, even basic plates and cutlery. I asked the male... More

Room just bigger then a small bed with shared bathrooms. Can be noisy if shower shares the wall. But for price compared to other hotels in area and walk distance it was good. They were able to setup a tour for me since I didn't have a phone.

Mi issue is with customer service, I was to arrive by bus at 9.15pm, on Dec.4th 2014 at the bus stop two blocks from the property, and when the lady owner (Sue) was informed by me from the road on the way to Rotorua, she told me that she was not going to wait, that the reception closes at 9pm,...

I couldn't believe how cheap this place was. It was one of the cleanest hostels we have stayed in. The rooms were quite small but they were comfortable and we were told of the size before we booked. The room had a microwave, toaster, crockery and cutlery. We were given plenty of advice of where to eat and what to... More

We stayed one night in a studio which was good value compared to other motels. We were only really there to sleep so everything was fine, wifi worked well and we had off road parking too. For backpackers this is a great choice.
